Nicki Minaj is certainly giving her fans their monies worth and putting on a very intriguing show. She brings out all her sexy little tricks from lapdances, dildo’s, and provocative and sensual dances. She is a performer that has created her own lane and enhances it every chance she gets. I admire her for being a rapper and having routine performances. Not just walking all over the stage yelling. Not the typical rap artist.

Miley might be pissed with her family but when it comes to protecting them she don’t take no mess. Miley Cyrus and mom Tish were enjoying a meal at California Chicken Cafe on Wednesday, with paparazzi stalking the outside of the dining establishment as usual. When they left, the paparazzi tried to get up close — and one went one step too far.

It’s hard to see exactly how hard they hit, but it’s clear that one photographer bumped into Tish, sending Miley into a rage. She chased him into a corner and unloaded a ranting defense of her mom’s honor, as the paparazzo tried, without success, to defend himself.
